The incident happened after the victim’s cousin invited friends, including the man, to a party in her flat on Rua dos Ervanários at 10pm on Saturday. When the party ended at 4am on Sunday, the women went to their bedroom to sleep. The man said he was drunk and tired and asked to sleep in the living room.
